Due mostly to injuries the New York Giants have shuffled quite a few roster spots in recent days. Let’s see how that has affected the team’s unofficial depth chart heading into the third preseason game.

Offense

Position First Team Second Team Third Team
Position First Team Second Team Third Team
LT Nate Solder Chad Wheeler
LG Will Hernandez John Greco
C Jon Halapio Evan Brown
RG Patrick Omameh Spencer Pulley
RT Ereck Flowers Chad Wheeler
TE Evan Engram Scott Simonson
TE Rhett Ellison Scott Simonson
QB Eli Manning Alex Tanney, Kyle Lauletta
WR Sterling Shepard Cody Latimer Kaelin Clay
WR Odell Beckham Jr. Russell Shepard
RB Saquon Barkley Wayne Gallman Jonathan Stewart
FB Shane Smith

This is where much of the shuffling has taken place, specifically at wide receiver and the offensive line. The BIG question is whether or not there is going to be a change in the starting offensive line, specifically at right guard. Brett Jones got first-team practice reps Wednesday, and both Jones and D.J. Fluker appear to be pushing incumbent John Jerry.

Defense

POS FIRST SECOND THIRD

DL B.J. Hill Kerry Wynn
DL Damon Harrison Mario Edwards John Jenkins
DL Dalvin Tomlinson Mario Edwards
SAM Kareem Martin Connor Barwin
ILB B.J. Goodson Tae Davis
$LB Alec Ogletree Ray-Ray Armstrong
WILL Olivier Vernon Lorenzo Carter
LCB Eli Apple Donte Deayon Antonio Hamilton
RCB Janoris Jenkins B.W. Webb Michael Jordan
SS Landon Collins Michael Thomas
FS Curtis Riley Sean Chandler Kamrin Moore

The big question here is how the Giants will handle the cornerback situation. Valentino Blake has left the team for unexplained reasons and Michael Hunter has a concussion. There is also an interesting competition for reserve linebacker spots.

Special Teams

P Riley Dixon

KR Cody Latimer Kaelin Clay
PR Kaelin Clay Odell Beckham Jr. Sterling Shepard

No changes here. Also, still little in terms of performance to separate placekickers Aldrick Rosas and Mike Nugent.
